Public Services makes it wheel-y easy to recycle

Share this page

Monday 27 February 2012

Spectacles, car batteries and cooking oil are just some of the more unusual items featured in the new recycling guide being delivered to all island homes.

The easy-to-use guide includes an A - Z 'what goes where', seasonal opening times for all waste sites, and a fridge magnet so the information can always be conveniently to hand.

Recycling Officer, Tina Norman- Ross said: 

"The new guide aims to address many of the frequently asked questions received by the Department, regarding where to take recyclable and non recyclable waste, site opening times, and inquiries about the Bulk Refuse scheme."

The Department hopes the new guide, which takes the form of a card recycling 'wheel' will encourage islanders to recycle more and inform them further about what can and can't be recycled.

The guide has colour coded options for the disposal of waste including bring bank sites, Longue Hougue Recycling Facility, Chouet Green Waste site, Home Composting and Mont Cuet Landfill site.

Deputy Minister, Scott Ogier said:

"Items that can be recycled locally and the facilities available have changed considerably since the previous leaflet was produced. It was time to update that information, and a the same time remind islanders how well Guernsey is doing and how much of our waste can be recycled or reused."

An additional 1,000 wheels will be available to distribute at events and through other organisations.
